Please note that, for the Spring 2013 Grant Cycle, proposals considered for grant funding will be limited to pantries, kitchens, and other organizations that directly distribute food stocks to people in need. 

Single Socks is very appreciative of organizations that engage in educational and infrastructure-building activities.  We anticipate soliciting funding proposals for this type of work in our next grant cycle.

8) A signed statement, by the appropriate person within the applying organization, committing that the information submitted in the application is accurate.

9) Any unspent grant funds must be returned to Single Socks within one year of the date of the awarding of the grant.
